molten cake sundaes. this month's special for sonic's ice cream social. this is how you sonic. okay, first order of physics bowl business: we need a truly kick-ass team name. suggestions? how about the perpetual motion squad? it's beyond the laws of physics, plus a little heads-up for the ladies. the ladies? "perpetual motion squad-- we can go all night." i like it. i don't. teams are traditionally named after fierce creatures thus intimidating one's opponent. then we could be the bengal tigers. poor choice. gram for gram, no animal exceeds the relative fighting strength of the army ant. maybe so but you can't incinerate a bengal tiger with a magnifying glass. let's put it to a vote. all those in favor... point of order. i move that any vote on team names must be unanimous. no man should be forced to emblazon his chest
6:33 pm
with a bengal tiger when common sense dictates it should be an army ant. will the gentleman from the great state of denial yield for a question? i will yield. after we go through the exercise of an annoying series of votes, all of which the gentleman will lose, does he then intend to threaten to quit if he does not get his way? he does. i move we are the army ants. all those in favor? good afternoon and welcome to today's physics bowl practice round. i'm penny, and i'll be your host because apparently i didn't have anything else to do on a saturday afternoon, and isn't that just a little sad? gentlemen, are you ready? yes. of course. fire away. you know, it's none of my business but isn't a guy who can't speak in front of women going to hold you back a little? oh, he'll be okay once the women are mixed into the crowd. he only has a problem when they're one-on-one and smell nice. aw, thanks, raj. it's vanilla oil. i was actually the one who noticed. okay, let's just start. okay, the first question is on the topic of optics. "what is the shortest light pulse ever produced?"
6:34 pm
(buzzer) dr. cooper. and of course the answer is 130 attoseconds. that is correct. i knew that, too. good for you, sweetie. okay, next question: "what is the quantum mechanical effect used to encode data on hard-disk drives?" (buzzer) howard? and of course the answer is giant magnetoresistance. right. hey, i buzzed in. and i answered. it's called teamwork. don't you think i should answer the engineering questions? i am an engineer. by that logic i should answer all the anthropology questions because i'm a mammal. just ask another one. okay. "what artificial satellite has seen glimpses of einstein's predicted frame dragging?" (buzzer) and of course, it's gravity probe b. sheldon, you have to let somebody else answer. why? because it's polite. what do manners have to do with it? this is war. were the romans polite when they salted the ground of carthage to make sure nothing would ever grow again?
6:35 pm
leonard, you said i only had to ask questions. the objective of the competition is to give correct answers. if i know them why shouldn't i give them? some of us might have the correct answers, too. oh, please. you don't even have a phd. all right, that's it! howard, sit down. okay. maybe we should take a little break. good idea. i need my wrist brace. all this button-pushing is aggravating my old nintendo injury. i agree. what did he say? he compared sheldon to a disposable feminine cleansing product one might use on a summer's eve. yeah, and the bag it came in. leonard, excellent. i want to show you something. can it wait? i need to talk to you. just look. i've designed the perfect uniforms for our team. the colors are based on star trek: the original series. the three of you will wear support red, and i will wear command gold. why do they say "aa"?
6:36 pm
army ants. isn't that confusing? "aa" might mean something else to certain people. why would a physics bowl team be called anodized aluminum? no, i meant... never mind. hey, check it out, i got you a batman cookie jar. oh, neat! what's the occasion? well, you're a friend, and you like batman and cookies, and you're off the team. what? howard, raj and i just had a team meeting. no, you didn't. yes, we did. i just came from there. okay, i don't know where you just came from but it couldn't have have been a team meeting because i'm on the team and i wasn't there. ergo, the team did not meet. okay, let me try it this way: i was at a coffee klatch with a couple of friends and one thing led to another and it turns out you're off the team. why? because you're taking all the fun out of it.
6:37 pm
i'm sorry, is the winner of the physics bowl the team that has the most fun? okay, let me try it this way: you're annoying and no one wants to play with you anymore. i see. well, at this point i should inform you that i intend to form my own team and destroy the molecular bonds that bind your very matter together and reduce the resulting particulate chaos to tears. thanks for the heads-up. you're welcome. one more thing. yes? it's on, bitch.
6:38 pm
6:39 pm

6:42 pm
he won't say. he just smiles and eats macaroons out of his bat jar. he's using psychological warfare. we must reply in kind. i say we wait until he looks at us then laugh like, "yes, you are a smart and strong competitor, "but we are also smart and strong and we have a reasonable chance of defeating you." how exactly would that laugh go? (high-pitched evil laughter) that sounds more like, "we are a tall thin woman who wants to make a coat out of your dalmatians." gentlemen. (high-pitched evil laughter) okay, we're going to need a strong fourth for our team. you know who is apparently very smart is the girl who played tv's blossom. she got a phd. in neuroscience or something. raj, we're not getting tv's blossom to join our physics bowl team.
6:43 pm
how about the girl from the wonder years? gentlemen, i believe i've found the solution to all our problems. we can't ask leslie winkle. why? because you slept together and when she was done with you she discarded you like last night's chutney? yes. sometimes you've got to take one for the team. yeah, sack up, dude. fine. here i go, taking one for the team... in the sack. hey, leslie. hi, guys. so, leslie, i have a question for you and it might be a little awkward, you know, given that i... hit that thang. leonard, there is no reason to feel uncomfortable just because we've seen each other's faces and naked bodies contorted in the sweet agony of coitus. there's not? gee, 'cause it sure sounds like there
6:44 pm
should be. rest assured that any aspects of our sexual relationship regarding your preferences your idiosyncrasies, your performance are still protected by the inherent confidentiality of the bedroom. that's all very comforting but if it's okay i'd like to get on to my question now. proceed. we are entering the physics bowl and we need a fourth for our team. no, thanks. i'm really busy with my like-sign dilepton supersymmetry search. dilepton, shmilepton. we need you. sorry. well, we tried. we'll just have to face sheldon mano y mano y mano a mano. wait, you're going up against sheldon cooper? yes. that arrogant, misogynistic, east texas doorknob that told me i should abandon my work with high-energy particles for laundry and childbearing? she's in. gentlemen. sheldon.
6:45 pm
sheldon. (laughs evilly) sheldon. i'm just gonna sit down. so, is that your team? actually, i don't need a team. i could easily defeat you single-handedly, but the rules require four. so, may i introduce the third-floor janitor, the lady from the lunch room and my spanish is not good-- either her son or her butcher. and what about your team? what rat have you recruited to the s.s. sinking ship? leslie: hello, sheldon. leslie winkle. yeah, leslie winkle. the answer to the question "who made sheldon cooper cry like a little girl?" yes, well, i'm polymerized tree sap and you're an inorganic adhesive. so whatever verbal projectile you launch in my direction is reflected off of me returns on its original trajectory and adheres to you. oh, ouch. okay, if everyone could please take your seats.
6:46 pm
here's your t-shirt. pms? it's a couple days early... no. it stands for "perpetual motion squad." oh, right, of course. what was i thinking? good afternoon, everyone and welcome to this year's physics bowl. today's preliminary match features two great teams. aa versus... pms. all night long, y'all! okay, well, let's jump right in. first question for ten points: "what is the iso-spin singlet partner of the pi-zero meson?" (buzzers sound) pms? the eta meson. correct.
6:47 pm
formal protest. on what grounds? the velcro on my wrist brace caught on my shirt. denied. all right, for ten points, "what is the lightest element on earth with no stable isotope?" aa? and of course, the answer is technetium. terrific. (applause) next question: "what is the force between two uncharged plates due to quantum vacuum fluctuation?" pms? sheldon can suck on... the casimir effect. correct. how does a quantum computer factor large numbers? pms? shorts algorithm. correct! 4.1855 times ten to the seventh ergs per calorie. prevost's theory of exchanges. lambda equals one over pi r squared n. yes, assuming the hypothetical planet has a mass greater than the earth. host: correct.
6:48 pm
ladies and gentlemen, i hold in my hand the final question. the score now stands: aa 1,150, pms 1,175. so, for 100 points and the match, please turn your attention to the formula on the screens. solve the equation. holy crap. what the hell is that? looks like something they found on the ship at roswell. come on. think. leslie? leonard, it's not gonna work if you rush me. you have to let me get there. you are never going to let that go, are you? ten seconds. pms? sorry, i panicked. then guess. um... eight. .4
6:49 pm
i'm sorry, that's incorrect. aa if you can answer correctly, the match is yours. he doesn't have it. he's got squat. aa, i need your answer. (russian accent): the answer is minus eight pi alpha. hang on. hang on a second. that's not our answer. what are you doing? answering question. winning physics bowl. how do you know anything about physics? here i am janitor. in former soviet union i am physicist. leningrad politechnika. go, polar bears. well, that's a delightful little story, but our arrangement was that you sit here and not say anything-- i answer the questions. you didn't answer question. hey, look, now maybe you have democracy now in your beloved russia
6:50 pm
but on this physics bowl team, i rule with an iron fist. ow! aa, i need your official answer. well, it's not what he said. then what is it? i want a different question. you can't have a different question. formal protest. denied. informal protest. denied. i need your official answer. no. i decline to provide one. well, that's too bad because the answer your teammate gave was correct. that's your opinion. all right, the winner of the match is... hang on. sheldon, is proving that you are single-handedly smarter than everyone else so important that you would rather lose by yourself than win as part of a team? i don't understand the question. go ahead. the winner is pms. ♪ we are the champions, my friends ♪ ♪ and we'll keep on fighting till the end ♪

6:53 pm
sorry, somebody's sitting there. who? my physics bowl trophy.
6:54 pm
that trophy is meaningless. i forfeited, therefore you did not win. i know someone who would disagree. who? my physics bowl trophy. (high voice): leonard is so smart. sheldon who? all right, that is very immature. you're right. i'm sorry.
